With the help of the Arab Coalition, the Yemeni national army has gained full control of an al-Qaeda stronghold, Wadi al-Misini, west of Mukalla city in Hadhramaut governorate.
The army killed nearly 20 armed members from the organization and arrested several others during the operation.
The commander of the elite brigade, Brigadier Mounir Karama al-Tamimi, said on Thursday that the armed forces found large quantities of ammunition, IEDs and explosives in the terrorist organization’s hideouts.
Tamimi noted that the attack operation has been in planning for over six months. Through it, the army was able to monitor the movements of remaining al-Qaeda elements who used al-Misini as a gathering point and a center for terrorist activity preparations.
